dc.descriptionAbstract: This study examines the P-level finite-element program "FIESTA" from an unbiased position. The purpose of such an examination is to determine whether or not the program should be included in the Corps of Engineers' file of finite-element programs. This evaluation further verifies the accuracy, cost effectiveness, and user friendliness of FIESTA by implementing it to analyze several general structural problems of Corps interest. The evaluation of FIESTA is accomplished by analyzing a two-dimensional cross section of a concrete dam; plate problems with varying thickness to depth ratios under surface, gravity, and temperature loading; examination of proper aspect ratio of elements; and a three-dimensional intermediate pier with unsymmetric loading of a concrete dam. The evaluation is based on a comparative study of FIESTA and GTSTRUDL codes (P-version and H-version, respectively). NOTE: This file is large.
